Rachel Bilson & Hayden Christensen “taking a break” from engagement


Us Weekly is reporting that Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson have “taken a break” from their relationship/engagement. I’m so shocked… except, yeah, I forgot they were engaged and they’re both kind of boring. But I’m getting a feeling that something not-so-boring happened between the two of them. According to Us Weekly’s report, it’s only an unnamed source who claim they’re taking a break. BUT, when Us Weekly asked Rachel about her wedding plans on Wednesday, she pointed to her ringless hand and said “No, no plans, no nothing.” Hm…

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen are “taking a break,” a source tells UsMagazine.com. The two announced their engagement in February 2009.

Bilson, 28, flashed a ringless finger to Us on the red carpet of the Take No Prisoners event in L.A. Wednesday night. When asked how wedding plans were going, she said, “No, no plans” and pointed to her bare hand. “No nothing.”

The source says the couple — who co-starred in 2008 action flick Jumper — are “taking about a month off” and will then revisit their relationship to decide if they should stay together.

The break began about two weeks ago, the source adds.

I know some people hate GayWatch and my own personal gaydar, but for all the joking around we do about people like Tom Cruise, Hugh Jackman, Bradley Cooper and Daniel Craig, Hayden’s vibe makes my gaydar jump more than any of those guys. And Hayden’s gay vibe isn’t sexy like Daniel Craig’s, where I want to see Daniel naked and groping another hot naked dude. Hayden’s alleged homosexuality seems sad to me. Like, he doesn’t know who he is. Like he’s hurt Rachel Bilson just because he didn’t want to acknowledge who he is. That’s just my take on their relationship problems though – in photos he doesn’t even seem to notice that his fiancee is a little cutie. He doesn’t seem engaged in her at all. But, whatever. God knows what was really going on.

By the way, a lot of people noted Hayden’s recent appearance at the CFDA Gala, and how fabulous he looked. Is he just a straight Canadian dude with style?

    How can you read all that into photos??

    Maybe he tired of her because she’s always out of work and does nothing but shop all day. . .

    I don’t really know much about them, but I was on a site once and was shocked that his fans really seemed to dislike her a great deal. I am not sure if he is gay or straight. Does not matter to me, but if he is gay best to know now. Maybe they realized how young they are. Both have careers that are really just starting. So maybe take a step back and see. Better than a divorce in a year or two.. Plus maybe children. More people should do the same.

    I am kind of on the fence. But those white sunglasses kind of scream it to me.

    Hayden is THE WORST actor.

  5. N.D. says:

    Never could understand the point of years long engagements. I mean in victorian era people sometimes had to wait for years because they didn’t have money to marry and their families were reluctant to give their consent and used a long engagement as a mean to wear the young love out. But in this day and age? When they are totally capable of supporting themselves and all? What exactly were they waiting for?

  6. Snarf says:

    Rachel has her own secrets to cover up (aledgedly). Guess they decided with no real careers to speak off (when was the last time either of them actually worked?), zero chemistry together, and gossip blogs and mags not buying the relationship, it was time to pull the plug.

    As a die hard OC fan, I’m still waiting for “Summer and Seth” to get back together. Her and Adam Brody were soooooo cute! I loved it.

    And I think she’s great. Him, eh.

  8. mr. stinky fishface says:

    And guys the OC is on syndication so she still probably pulls some cash for that.

    “Is he just a straight Canadian dude with style?”

    I love this! There has to be one, no…?

  10. LindyLou says:

    @Towerbridge – I see Canadian dudes every day and style seems to be the last thing they care about – at least the straight ones!! ;)

  11. pebbles says:

    Yeah, my gaydar is ping-ing as well.
    Better that they just end the PR relationship and let Hayden come out of the closet.
    Who cares if he’s gay?!

  12. Kali says:

    Hayden Christiansen doesn’t seem gay. It’s funny that celebrities are called “boring” because they live a low key life. If I was a celeb, I’d prefer to be “boring” than being known like Lindsay Lohan.

  13. Nah says:

    Hayden isn’t gay. He just wasn’t into Rachel. Better they both move on and find someone who really does it for them since they don’t seem to do anything for each other.

  14. andrea says:

    those damn various-colored raybans have GOT to go. so douchey.

  15. Mairead says:

    Lord these two have no chemistry. Which might be fair enough in real life – relationships are usually based on more – but when they inflict it on the cinema-going public I get annoyed. They were the worst thing about “New York I Love You” (she was by far the worst actor) and had to embarrass poor Andy Garcia by sharing the scene with him.

    I just assume most men in Hollywood are bi – it’s most likely to be the truth.

  16. Novaraen says:

    I agree these two have no chemistry whatsoever…..and no acting talent either. ;-P

    Although I think Hayden is yummy when he’s all spruced up. :)

  17. Ally says:

    His Bob Dylan impression in Factory Girl was terrific.

  18. docalion says:

    Rachel Bilson is so cute!

  19. maria says:

    Rachel Bilson is really cute, and I liked how low key they were. A shame it didn’t work out between them…but I hope he’s not gay! Why do all the hot ones end up being douches or coming out of the closet?
